Foxconn, which is based in Taiwan and operates facilities in mainland China, is a major hardware supplier for the tech industry and products like the iPhone.




The company told The Verge that it was "closely monitoring" the situation and "applying all recommended health and hygiene practices," but doesn't expect slowdowns.

Foxconn, which manufactures key components of the iPhone and supplies many of the world's largest tech companies, told The Verge on Tuesday that the coronavirus outbreak has not impacted its production schedules.
"We can confirm that we have measures in place to ensure that we can continue to meet all global manufacturing obligations," the company told The Verge, while refusing to comment on specific practices.
Analysts have speculated that Apple, which manufactures nearly all of its iPhones in China, could be significantly impacted by the outbreak, though Foxconn said it's not concerned about any slowdowns.
